The Natal Sun in Aspect
Sun harmonizing with Mars
You are bold, daring, confident, active, vital, energetic and positive. You love friendly competition and your initiative, self- esteem and self-confidence make you a winner at all you undertake. You have learned how to control your desires by using your willpower and that brings added power, for the person that can control the self can control the world. You have wonderful physical vitality and excellent recuperative powers. You need to be involved in some sort of physical exercise program or sports in order to release some of your excess energy in a healthy way. You have a strong sense of fair play and do not resort to underhanded means to get ahead. You have leadership skills and executive ability. You are a tireless worker and command respect from those around you. You are self-assertive with inborn courage and you will fight for your rights as well as the rights of others.
Sun discordant to Mars
You are more concerned with your own self-preservation than with the needs or interests of others. You have a fighting spirit and are in competition with those around you. You need to learn how to cooperate and to compromise. You enjoy picking little fights and going head-to-head with others over almost any matter, no matter how trivial. Your desires get the better of you because you lack self-control. You are selfish at times, you often feel that you need to fight to get what you want, and you tend to have a “me-first” attitude that angers or irritates others. You have a need to be right, even when you aren’t.
You have difficulty in forgiving others and in saying you are sorry. You have a great deal of energy and vitality but you must be careful that you do not dissipate it in unproductive or sensual living. You are hasty, impatient and sometimes reckless. You have a need to think before you act. You do not like any form of restraint and you rebel against taking orders. You have trouble with superiors because of this and this can affect your career. You have a fiery temper and a tendency towards accidents and fevers. You need to be careful of overexertion as you tend to do things until you simply burn out. You become frustrated easily and you throw fits if you do not get your way. Your impulsive actions can lead you into many difficulties, including perhaps becoming a compulsive gambler. You become frustrated easily and this triggers impatience and anger, which you tend to take out on the ones closest to you.
If you can learn how to properly channel all that drive and energy, then there is no limit to your accomplishments and success. But this will take self-discipline, self-control, restraint, patience, persistence and willpower. You need to realize that your own personal desires may not be in line with your Spirit’s desires and that is what is causing all the stress you feel inside. Seek your Higher Self and you can then turn a lot of these negatives into positives. The obstacles that occur concerning the obtaining of your personal desires are to help you remain in agreement with your Spirit’s desires. You have the necessary confidence and courage which are of considerable help to you in flowing with the obstacles that this aspect brings into your life. You simply need to develop more self-control.
Sun harmonizing with Jupiter
Your optimism and cheerfulness win you many friends and help you succeed in life. You have a lot of self-confidence which attracts benefits in amazing ways. You want to expand yourself through some type of philosophy. This aspect helps protect you from danger and harm, even if just at the last moment. You are enthusiastic and have good-spirits, good luck and a desire to interact socially with others. A certain measure of material wealth is probable with this aspect. You have big aspirations but do not struggle much or labor hard to achieve them. You are generous, big-hearted, reliable, sincere, honest and idealistic with a strong sense of justice, fairness, ethics and morality. Mean acts of revenge towards others are beneath you and you will not jeopardize your character and your reputation by stooping to such levels. You are working on controlling your ego through some sort of religious or other philosophy. This aspect brings much of life’s happiness to you because you have earned benefits in previous lives by being so kind and thoughtful to others.
Sun discordant to Jupiter
You tend to be optimistic and confident, but overly so. You are self-indulgent and over-extravagant. There is a selfish streak within you that sometimes keeps you from devoting yourself to others. There may be religious fanaticism here, with a closed-minded adherence to one particular dogma. You do not have the best judgment at times and you promise more than you are capable of delivering. You display false pride. You tend to exaggerate your stories or your own abilities. You find it difficult to generate the necessary resolve to follow through on completing the projects you start. You have big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way, but you may not have the initiative or persistence to make it a reality. But in spite of all this, you never seem to lose your hopes for the future.
You may become restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations you have in life. At some point your faith will be tested to see just how strong it is. You may encounter legal problems, especially with or through those in positions of authority. You need to ask yourself when does self-confidence become egotism? You want to feel important and that can easily bring on an egotistical manner. You love to show yourself off and make yourself into someone important.
You are capable of gaudy displays of extravagance. You are wasteful of the energies and resources that you have been entrusted with. All actions should be carefully thought out, so that you do not experience severe losses due to over-speculation, loans, investments, gambling, etc. Social prestige is important to you. You may be subject to circulation problems of the blood, especially the arterial circulation. Living the “good life” can add extra pounds and this can contribute to health problems as well. You need to stay active and keep exercising.
Sun harmonizing with Saturn
You are realistic, mature, practical, organized, disciplined and serious. Hard work does not bother you and you understand that it takes time to build anything of lasting value. You are thorough and attentive to details. Your ambitions are well-grounded and you do not make promises you can’t keep. You have the ability to concentrate and continue working on something until it is completely finished – and done correctly. You have the necessary patience and persistence to be successful at anything you undertake. You have a strong sense of responsibility and are very conscientious in fulfilling your duties. You often do things because you feel it is expected of you. You have a certain shyness and reserve about you that does not make others uncomfortable by being around you. You dislike making a spectacle of yourself. Your need to feel organized causes you to dislike disorder and clutter in your home or workplace.
There may be gain through older people. Those in positions of authority help you because they see that you are a hard and dedicated worker. You are a born leader with the innate ability to appraise and coordinate the efforts needed to obtain your objectives.
Your mind is practical, contemplative and authoritative. You may have difficulty taking directions from others, though, because of your own methodical analysis of all situations.
Sun discordant to Saturn
You tend to be selfish, cold, unfeeling and uncaring, worried, fearful and insecure. You may have a ruthless ambition that lets nothing stand in the way of its goals. You have a cautious, careful, realistic attitude toward life and are highly responsible and disciplined with regard to your obligations and duties. You tend to work and struggle more than you need to, and to take yourself too seriously. You need to lighten up. You prefer the patterns and activities that you are already used to rather than new experiences. You struggle with feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions, self-doubt and loneliness. Everything you try to accomplish has to be worked at very hard and perhaps for a very long time.
You are subject to delays and frustrations at every turn, it seems. You may have difficulties with your father or those in authority. This is not an easy aspect, but it does give great persistence, endurance, patience and staying power. You need to learn how to give yourself to others with no thought of reward for yourself. Share your love and possessions and open yourself up to the needs and concerns of others. You have been much too selfish and self-absorbed in previous lives and now you must learn to share with others. You are being asked to compromise and cooperate with others in order to remove any tendency towards self-interest.
Another challenge for you is to overcome your self-criticalness. You have a very high standard of what constitutes achievement and perfection and you expect yourself and others to live up to it. But you go overboard with your attitude. First, it is unrealistic. Second, it is impossible to reach. This causes you a great deal of stress and frustration. Then, you feel that others are working against your achieving this perfection, when in reality, it is your Spirit which is attracting inefficiency around you in order to force you to stop judging yourself and others too harshly and critically. Again, the message is for you to lighten up.

You tend to get involved with too many things which scatters your energies. You jump from one thing to another so quickly that you either never get really good at anything or you never finish anything. People can’t count on you because you are erratic and don’t follow through on your promises. You are impulsive, restless, nervous and undisciplined. You are subject to accidents because of your rashness, impatience and carelessness.
Your life is unstable and full of sudden changes in order to promote soul growth. You may have interest in electronics, astrology, motorcycles or the occult, but don’t have the necessary persistence to stick with any of them. You want your freedom at all costs and you crave excitement, adventure, risk and discovery. You have an outrageous nature whereby you simply do things just for the sake of shocking others, perhaps to shake them out of their antiquated attitudes. You want to change and reform everything, even if you don’t have a better plan with which to replace the existing situation or condition. People think you are odd and perhaps from another planet.
But this bothers you little. In fact, you get a kick out of it. You need to develop an awareness of the needs of others. You have a tendency to think of your own desires first. You should learn to listen to the ideas of others with an open mind before making any decisions. You are easily bored and need excitement in your life. It is for this reason that you love a good challenge. Your intellectual development may be far ahead of your emotional development. You believe that you are right and the world is wrong. You must learn to control your impulsive behavior.

You tend to be very idealistic, a bit romantic, and at times somewhat impractical. You are filled with many ideas and much inspiration and with a little effort you could bring all your dreams and fantasies into reality. In previous lifetimes you have started the work of developing your psychic potential into concrete abilities and you may continue that work in this life by serving those around you who need your help. You are able to contact your Higher Self for wisdom, truth and guidance. You have a love of art, music and painting and you appreciate refinement and high ideals.
You may have visions and dreams that you do not understand. Because of your extreme sensitivity, you tend to avoid direct confrontation with others. You are blessed with a certain ethereal charm and magnetism.
Sun discordant to Neptune
You have the tendency to dream as a substitute for getting any real work done. You like to procrastinate and put off difficult jobs for as long as possible, hoping they will simply go away. You have a vivid imagination which can get you into trouble because half the stuff you worry about and fret over do not ever happen. You have a need to express yourself creatively through some sort of art form or music, drama or photography, but you may lack the necessary drive, energy, ambition and desire to follow through on your plans. You are attracted to the metaphysical and the occult but there is danger waiting for you if you get involved with negative psychic practices such as Ouija boards, séances, hypnotism or mediums.
You lack willpower and you too easily succumb to temptation. Drugs or alcohol may tempt you and seemingly offer you a way out of your troubles, but if you give in, they will cause you nothing but sorrow.
You suffer from delusions of grandeur and you are not very practical. You need to get your head out of the clouds and come back to reality. You are very sympathetic and compassionate and will go out of your way to help someone. But you lack discrimination and are a sucker for any kind of sob story, hence you are often taken advantage of by others. This leaves you depressed and disillusioned. You must remember, though, that no one can hurt you, use you or take advantage of you unless you allow it. You need to develop more backbone and learn how to say “No”.
You may experience personal loss of focus and not know what you should be doing with your life. You are overly emotional, romantic or sentimental. Materialism may blind you to spiritual realities. You are extremely sensitive and need to watch which situations and people you surround yourself with. You have a heightened sensitivity to medicine also, so you need to watch your dosages of any prescribed drugs.
Because you are gentle and peace-loving, you may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make your way in the world. Your fantasy life brings self-deception or deception by others. You need to become aware that you may have to stand up for your spiritual convictions and principles, even though it may involve conflict. You are easily hurt by what others say about you and many times you take the easy way out by being non-controversial. You need to learn not to idealize others, but to accept them and appreciate them as they are and not as you wish them to be. There may be danger from hidden or secret enemies who have come to you to even the score for wrong doings in previous lives. Be careful of whom you choose as “friends”.

You tend to be possessive, jealous, obsessive and compulsive and you like to have power and control over people and situations. You have the burning desire to be recognized for your expertise and you want more than anything to be recognized as “the authority” at something. You tend to worship “heroes” who have powerful magnetism and charisma, and you want to follow in their footsteps. You need to recognize that your strong will and stubbornness create difficulties for you because you are not allowing others to teach you the lessons you need to learn. In order for you to see this more clearly other people are brought into your life to mirror your negative traits back to you. If you refuse to transform your ego, then things will only get worse, as the universe will get its way with you.
You think you know it all and you believe that you are always right. People are threatened by you and some will try to get you first before you get them.

Give others a break and stop being such a slave driver. Stay out of their lives and let them run them the way they see fit. Work on reforming yourself before you try to reform the rest of the world. Use power wisely or it will come back to haunt you in the end. Always remember that you will reap everything you sow, so sow wisely and carefully.
